Introducing the latest version of the European Championship-winning Hot Bodies Cyclone 12, the Cyclone 12X! This car is the the result of Andy Moore, Atsushi Hara and the rest of the worldwide Hot Bodies racing team. Hot Bodies refined the 2007 & 2008 European Champion Cyclone 12 and turned it into an even better circuit racer! With several all-new parts and many option parts now as standard, the 12X will be the car to beat at clubs and tracks around the world!

The 12X features improved parts to make racing tighter, faster, more reliable and stronger! With a number of updates to the front suspension, you will experience great on-track handling as you carve the turns! At the rear, a new one-piece graphite axle replaces the older aluminium axle, plus a new left wheel hub clamp provides easier access to the new ride height mount adapters!

The front of the 12X is where we made the most changes to the car - they may be hard to spot, but what we have updated will make a huge difference on the track. The basic layout of the 12X front suspension is identical to the Cyclone 12, it's just a few critical parts that are new. The 3-way reactive caster suspension is still in place, with convenient clips to adjust the caster angle. Metal locknuts hold the wheels in place for a secure fit.

The hingepin and the kingpin are now ultra-hard titanium nitride coated, which is extremely durable and smooth - this is the same coating on the best drill bits you can find, so you know it's extra-tough! The 12X is also equipped with graphite lower suspension arms, which are lightweight and extremely strong. These arms feature an adjustable ball clamp so you can eliminate slop in the steering, which is critical in 1/12th circuit racing.

The newly designed steering knuckles allow you to get a lower ride height and are also easier to fit the new-style axles to. Finally, the new FRP cross brace gives you extra steering feel on the track so you can feel more confident on tight and twisty club circuits. For extra front end stiffness you can use the optional woven graphite front brace instead of the standard FRP version.

The new rear axle is also a new design for the 12X. It utilises a one-piece carbon graphite axle shaft that is made from a single piece of extremely lightweight and amazingly stiff material. The one-piece design provides direct and efficient transfer of power to the rear wheels.

New for the T-bar is an aluminium mount that allows you to fix the front of the fibreglass T-bar solidly in place, or let it float freely on specially coated pivot balls. This allows extra suspension feel and traction in all situations when combined with the Cyclone 12 Micro Shock Absorber. The T-bar features 3 separate tweak screw locations for a huge range of adjustability, and two pivot mounts for secure and reliable performance. A woven graphite damper bar secures the rear body posts, battery straps and the damper pads, which control the amount pod action.

Also new on the rear axle is a new left wheel hub, which features a simple clamping mechanism, extremely light weight, secure 3-bolt mounting for all popular wheel types and great looks. It allows you to 'set and forget' the rear hubs in place without worrying about anything changing during your racing day.

In the rear, the motor pod is made up of two aluminium sides, carbon fibre bottom brace, carbon fibre damper plate and a solid aluminium tube. This gives you a secure, stiff and reliable rear pod for mounting any type of racing motor. The motor is easy to access and remove from the top, and the pod is large enough to easily fit any brushed or brushless motor. With a large cutout on the left side, all motors are easy to install and remove.

New for the 12X are redesigned axle ride height adapters, which allow you to alter the rear ride height of the car for minute handling changes. An option for the lower brace is the finned black aluminium replacement to aid motor cooling and increase rigidity of the rear pod.
